San Francisco’s ambassadors of gypsy rock achieve that ultimate balance of performance art and musicianship. Step into their exotic world where explosive melodies take you on a Mr. Toad’s Wild Road of aural decadence. Imagine the sounds you’d hear emerging from an alley in old world Eastern Europe, wading through hookah smoke in a Persian bazaar and waking up in the middle of a raging loft party with a bunch of burner-esque hipsters. Long story short…this is going to require delving into your auxiliary tank of dance moves.

This Portland duo is the sonic equivalent of a defibrillator. These crazy cats go 0 – 60 faster than a Ferrari and then careen down blind curves like a toboggan with no brakes. Brace yourselves for a blood-curdling dose of country blues, stomp-grass, raging rock, moonshine punk and dance-disco-folk. And yes, buckets, cans and slide guitar may be harmed in the process.

Vandella is a love child of rock & roll, roots & soul, helmed by two enigmatic front people and distinct songwriters. A modern-day Buckingham-Nicks, vocalist Tracey Holland and guitarist Chris Tye mix up a potent potion of sexy 70’s rock and San Francisco indie soul. Holland is a powerhouse of a frontwoman, whose vocal prowess is matched only by her insistent command of the stage. As writers, Holland is at times intense and bewitching; tempered by the understated, perennially-cool air of her counterpart in Tye. The result is a sound that feels both exciting yet effortlessly vibey – evocative of that hazy sheen of their native California.

This up-and-coming talent from Nevada City possesses a complex grit, belying her hypnotic beauty. She drinks from the well of classic country and desert rock. She might take your imagination to a place where Stevie Nicks is backed by Crazy Horse or Mazzy Star has delved into country.
